That didn't work either.  It seems that anything I run through a pipe gets 
truncated.  I'm not sure why.  If I just run dpkg -l all by itself, I get a 
nicely spaced output that I could cut and past from, but that would require 
me to do the work that my computer should do for me ;-).  Any suggestions?  
Running this at the console (as opposed to an X terminal window) doesn't 
behave any differently.

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
